Introduction

Well, what interesting times are before us and ahead of us. Opportunities to see God’s presence and care, despite what appears to be the current material reality. I suspect many of you are wondering what next? - whether it’s health related, school, employment, financial uncertainty, work/family balance during a forced staycation - How am I going to navigate these waters? Before diving into the lesson together I want to tell you about the dream I had recently:

I awoke in the early morning, heartbroken. My pet snake had just met an untimely end, in an unfortunate and graphic way. And the worst part was it was doing its best to get me out of trouble. I was so confused and saddened - it was like I had lost a close relative. I wanted to wake my wife and talk things through. And that’s when I instantly realized that I had been dreaming. Why? Besides the fact that this snake I supposedly loved so much didn’t have a name, the moment I was going to shake my wife I remembered that there was no way we have ever had, or ever will have, for that matter, a snake, because my wife hates, hates, hates snakes. Immediately my grief dissolved and I caught on that I had been duped. What’s great is that with this realization, what I believed was grief was nothing more than a solid fantasy. (The implication of this snake “serpent” dream is not lost on me by the way.)

As I think of this absurd experience, I’m reminded of the metaphor in Hymn 412: “O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking, O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free; / The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking, / Unloosing bonds of all captivity.” (Hymn. 412:1) The truth is that you are spiritual, created and maintained by your Father/Mother Love. Now the five physical senses are going to tell you otherwise. They are going to present a strong case that the knowledge and information they are giving you is the truth. So your job is to wake up from the dream that you are a material creation to this bigger and better idea of what you truly are….GOD’S CHILD SPIRITUALLY MADE!!!!!

That doesn’t mean that we discount what’s going on in the material world, and there’s a lot going on in the world right now - uncertainty, fear, crisis, isolation, sickness, etc. It just means that you need to see beyond the material picture and use your spiritual senses to see what is true and real about yourself, your families, community, church and the world: confidence, harmony, community, health, care, compassion, love, supply, self-forgetfulness, patience, meekness, holiness, spiritual power, etc, etc. That’s where this week’s lesson on the subject “Reality” can be such a great help.

The analogy of “taste” appears in many different forms in this lesson. So for the fun of it, one way I approached this lesson was by using the metaphor of going to school to become a chef.

Section 1: these are the tools and ingredients you’re going to need, and this is the reason why these are the best.

Section 2: Why should you be a chef in the first place?

Section 3: Here’s an example of someone who was the best cook ever and how he applied his craft.

Section 4: Although cleaning as you go is an imperative part of cooking, sometimes you need to step back and experience what’s really important.

Section 5: Alright here are some best practices for cooking the best possible meal.

Also - Try substituting valuable and eternal for the word “real”, and you get a clearer sense of reality.

Golden Text –

When I read this citation from Psalms, I was reminded of one of my children. Recently, my preschool son sat at the dinner table looking at the burrito we served him. He was particularly unhappy. “Jacob, just taste it and you will like it!” I exclaimed. You see, all of the things in the burrito were things he loved, in fact there was nothing really new about any of it, the difference was simply in how it was assembled. “I won’t like it!” he responded. “Just taste it and see,” I said. And that’s really the jist. I had to get him to taste it before he realized that it was great. After a lot of explaining about the ingredients, coaxing and cajoling, he ate a bite...and then he ate the whole thing and loved it. PHEW!

Is God really worth trying to understand? Is it safe to rely on God to actually find full and complete protection, a place to take refuge and shelter? The only way to truly see if it’s true and works is to get the full experience - to take a bite. (Kind of like chocolate, I can tell you how it tastes, but to get the real sense of it, you finally have to take a bite and let it melt in your mouth.)

I think in a sense this is the premise of the Golden Text, and a roadmap to the rest of this Lesson. It says, “Look if you want to find a true and lasting sense of happiness, fulfillment and safety, you’re going to have to know God and your relationship to Him, and you’re going to have to dive in (and in an even deeper way then you dive into what you imagine might be an unappetizing dining experience, smiling).”

Responsive Reading –

Psalm 111 is referred to as a Psalm praising God’s great deeds (great “works”) and Psalm 145 is similarly referred to as a Psalm praising and singing (“extolling”) about God’s character (Notes - New Revised Standard Version of the Bible). Also Psalm 145 is similar to Psalm 119 (that really long Psalm) in the sense that they are both acrostic, each new verse beginning with the next in order of the Hebrew Alphabet.

The passages chosen for the (RR) dive into God’s works, including God’s Covenant for his people (His promise of everlasting presence and salvation), his statutes and commandments, his very activity among his people (that includes us both in Biblical times and as well as right now), and how they have been praised and shared throughout all times and generations.

A few things you might ask yourselves: 1) Where might the immediate global challenge fit into these passages? (hint: this is a rhetorical question); 2) What if you were to approach this lesson as if you weren’t convinced that spiritual reality is the only real reality, that matter seems pretty real, so you’re questioning whether or not to turn to God in order to find healing, supply, protection. This Responsive Reading and this Bible Lesson as a whole in one sense are set up to make a case that Spirit and all things spiritual (spiritual reality) are the “only real and eternal.”

First line of the Responsive Reading - “Sought out of them that have pleasure therein” - the New Living translation has “...studied by them who delight in them [the works of God].” Which is to say, some people find the works of God so great they delightfully study and learn from them; think about prophets, disciples, apostles, Mary Baker Eddy, CS teachers/practitioners, grandparents, parents, Sunday School Teachers, even you!

I just love the assurance of the last passage in the (RR) - “The Lord is nigh unto
ALL THEM that call upon Him…” The Lord is right there with you, just call out to God and you’ll see.

Section 1: Your starting point – Believing and Understanding Spiritual Creation–
[Global Prayer Watch GEMS on citations B1, B2, B3 from Cobbey Crisler’s insights on John, Genesis & Psalms coming today by email. They & others later on our GEMs webpage.]

I was at a college graduation dinner, when a medical doctor struck up a conversation with me. Her husband was a Christian Scientist and she attended Sunday services frequently. The topic of Mary Baker Eddy came up. She said she really respected this woman as a thinker and as the founder of a church. She had a lot of nice things to say about her. But then she got candid. She drew closer to me, and said, “Don’t you think that if Mrs. Eddy were around today, with all of the advancements in modern medicine, Christian Science wouldn’t have been founded?” In effect, her question was one of the common impositions or misunderstandings about Christian Science today, that it’s a 19th Century religion out of date in a technologically advanced society.

What I really wanted to say before we were interrupted to sit down for dinner was, “Haven’t you listened to that prayer at the end of the service every Sunday you’ve attended: The Scientific Statement of Being?” The question of whether advanced matter works to fix sick or injured matter is not what Mary Baker Eddy was interested in; it was that “Spirit is the real and eternal, matter is the unreal and temporal.” Because matter is fleeting and temporary, it isn’t of value. It’s like trying to use Monopoly money to check out at the grocery store. Mary Baker Eddy makes the bold assertion that what is real, valuable, and powerful are only those things that are in and of Spirit, spiritual creation. Citation S5 states things really well: “Spiritual facts are not inverted; the opposite discord, which bears no resemblance to spirituality, is not real.”

To inartfully switch the metaphor – while I am no mathematician – one of the things I remember from my high school Geometry class was that everything builds upward, so it was really important to understand the first lessons because they were going to be part of the more difficult things you were going to learn later on. In fact, those rules, theorems, that you were learning were integral to solving problems.

Well, that’s the same with the Science of the Christ, Christian Science. You have to understand the basis of Spiritual Creation, because it’s going to be used in all of the more difficult problems you are going to be faced with going forward. And if you do understand it, have faith – believe – and understand it, those harder problems aren’t really so hard. So, take this section as the foundational material that you believe, have faith in, understand and know.

Creation is not a “Which came first: the chicken or the egg?” argument. It starts as “the Word” in the form of a command. As citation B1 states so precisely, “In the beginning was the Word”, which is a shout out to Genesis 1. In Genesis Chapter 1 creation is in words, not in matter, “And God said, let there be light and there was light.” (B2) outlines the very nature of creation as “very good.” Mary Baker Eddy tackles this word “beginning” in her chapter on Genesis in this way, “This word beginning is employed to signify the only, — that is, the eternal verity and unity of God and man, including the universe.” (SH 502:24–27) Which is to say the concepts of “beginning and end” as they are commonly used are not included in God’s creation.

There is a common assumption in religious thought that God created everything (matter included), and then left it to us – we are responsible for doing everything else, God now is just watching. A kind of “there you go, good luck!” The Psalmist response “You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the earth. (B4, New King James Translation).

Section 2: Now that you know about your real spiritual creation, let go of believing in any other Gods. Have one God and make a binding agreement to faithfully stick with it.

In citation B6, the first verse from Job is a great way of just saying, alright now that I know about God, God’s creation, and understand that God is maintaining what God has made, so what idols or gods are distracting me and trying to convince me that God isn’t the Creator of all? I like the metaphor of a sentinel. A really good sentinel has to know intimately the landscape she is keeping watch over, then if the landscape changes, there are three trees over there instead of two, she knows that there might be a problem. If you know spiritual creation, then when something unlike spiritual creation appears you can sound the alarm, and turn to what is true.

In citation B7 Joshua makes his argument and plea for the people to make a binding agreement, a commitment, “Covenant,” to choose and serve God. This agreement is a big deal in the sense that it is permanent, not just an agreement to turn to when you’re in hot water. Think about an agreement you’ve made. As you reach adulthood there are many: signing for student loans, buying a car, entering into a marriage. In those types of agreements you do get a benefit, like an education or transportation or love/friendship/partnership. These are bilateral contracts – they benefit both parties involved. You definitely have to spend a good deal of resources over a long period of time for that benefit.

What’s included in a commitment to God? Well, it certainly includes loving God with all your heart, strength and mind, and loving your neighbor as yourself. It also includes things like following the 10 Commandments and following the Sermon on the Mount – walking in the path of Christ Jesus.

In one sense it’s really hard to see the tangible benefits of making this eternal commitment with God. The argument goes like this, “Well, if God is always there for me, then does it really matter if I’m always faithful to God?” The thing of it is God is here right now guiding and guarding you, showing you your worth, and your holiness as a child of God. From personal experience, this grows more and more as trust in God grows.

There’s a reason that the children of Israel made their commitment to God. They knew how caring God had been, how God had led their ancestors out of Egypt, how God had cared for them. They understood that agreeing to follow God’s commandments including not worshipping other gods was a small price to pay for feeling God’s ever-presence and love.

The second part of citations B8 and B9 are the benefits of making a commitment to God: a) God will establish a plan for you; and b) you are blessed. Not bad for choosing God.

Citation S7 is an argument against the notion that God creates bad things that happen.

Citations S8, S9, S10 bring up and answer questions such as:
Are you startled by the worldwide calamity that’s going on right now?
Are you willing to give “discord” damaging and destructive power over the spiritual supremacy and power of God?
What about the pleasure of matter, does that have at least some power in your thought?

The question where does your very existence come from is really the question you should be asking yourself. “Our health, our longevity, and our Christianity” hang in the balance. Citation B9 is the reminder to just taste God and see for God is good, and if you trust in Him you are blessed.

Citation S12 reminds us that in the moment that you let go of the seeming power of material existence, you let go of other gods. And here’s the blessing “As vapor melts before the sun, so evil would vanish before the reality of good.” (480:31-1)

Section 3: Now that you’ve learned about spiritual creation as the reality, and you’ve made a commitment to serve God, here’s how you can apply this in your healing practice.

In my own practice, I have had patients say things like, “Thank you for your healing work.” I always am quick to respond that this is not my work, this is God’s, the Rock of our salvation. So, citation B10 has special meaning to me: “Give all the glory and credit to God who is the Rock. Because God's work is always perfect, always just and right.” (Deuteronomy 32: 3, 4)

Citation B11 about eating honey-butter brings thought back to the Golden Text: “Taste and see how good the Lord is!” This passage says to me eat only the good stuff, so if you taste something unlike the good you will know the difference. This is a good metaphor for the introduction of Christ Jesus in this lesson who “returned in the power of the Spirit.” (B13, Luke 4:14) Jesus returned after 40 days in the wilderness where he had overcome the temptations from the devil. You could definitely say that Jesus knew the difference between good and evil.

What have we learned in this Bible Lesson on Reality so far? We’ve learned about spiritual creation and all its benefits, and we’ve made an agreement to serve God. I think here is a good reminder that there will be temptations for you as well, especially if you want a taste of God’s good and loving “spiritual power,” a power that is here for each one of you.

Citation B12 is one of my favorite accounts of healing that occurs when Jesus heals the man with the withered hand. Reading the account today, I am struck by how Jesus called out the stubborn thought of the scribes and Pharisees as the healing itself. Through the correct argument (is it lawful to do good and save life on the sabbath?) he was able to change their thoughts.

This brings to mind a healing my family experienced. My wife and daughter were traveling, and on the first day of the trip my 3-year-old daughter began to feel ill. By that evening she had a fever and had thrown up. They were staying with a friend who was not necessarily a fan of Christian Science. When I think about this healing account in citation B12, it occurs to me that it was simply tradition which the scribes and Pharisees were attached to and were having a hard time seeing past when they were judging Jesus for healing on the Sabbath day. Jesus didn’t get mad or frustrated, but he was clear about what was right. Keeping the Sabbath holy had to include doing good, which in turn had to include healing.

Mistrust or frustration with someone’s religion is not something to be angry about, it’s something to mentally argue against in order to allow Love to win the day. As my wife and I prayerfully addressed both the stubborn thought of someone who doubted the effectiveness of Christian Science, as well as the ailment, the atmosphere of healing Love began to be felt. The following day’s scheduled events were set aside for rest, prayer and movies. By that evening, our daughter felt better. She had a good night's sleep, and she had a complete healing by the next morning. While the healing was probably not recognized by their host, there was a great feeling of camaraderie and love with everyone involved. A side note - no one else including my wife became ill after this event.

I’ve heard of healings that go like this - When I saw my neighbor who I had been fighting with as God’s child, my broken hand was healed. Something like this seems weird right? But look at what’s going on in your life, whether it’s frustration, anger, sadness, lack - and understand that by giving into those feelings as just part of your nature or as something outside of your control, means you don’t quite believe that God is in control in all circumstances. When you prayerfully handle those thoughts through the power of Truth, Spirit, you will be surprised at the effects it has on other parts of your life.

(SH15) Here is a practical example of how to use the first lessons of spiritual creation in healing work. Start with what the spiritual senses are telling you, not the material senses. Start with man/woman made in the image and likeness of God. Mrs. Eddy puts it succinctly in (SH15) “the Saviour saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick.”

So, let’s make this practical. Take a moment and let’s silently pray together right now for the world. Contagion and disease are what seem to be true. But that’s not the truth of spiritual creation as we’ve learned it in section 1, and we’ve made a commitment to follow only God and God’s creation from section 2. So now let’s choose God and not be convinced, shocked, startled, and definitely let’s not concede power to anything that is not God. Now that we’ve taken this stand, let us together see the world as God made it - spiritual and perfect. In this way we are witnesses for God’s ever-present healing power. Mrs. Eddy reminds us that “God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man.” ( SH 393:13) That power is tangible and is yours as God’s committed followers.

How did it go?

Section 4: Don’t get so caught up in what you think you’re supposed to do; instead listen for what God wants you to do and then follow that path. But be patient and love your neighbor as yourself.

As a former First Reader I learned early on the importance of finding passages that introduce Christ Jesus like (B15) “And it came to pass, that, when Jesus returned, the people gladly received him.” Instead of just jumping into a story about Jesus, a passage like this is a good way to set the scene, providing a good segue way. It’s good to let your audience know about your making a transition.

That being said, I was really moved by this transition and the story of Martha and Mary. It’s a great reminder that regardless of what was going on with the Pharisees and the Sadducees, the people who knew or at least heard what Jesus was up to “gladly received him.” But did all the people gladly receive him? It appeared that while Martha probably was really happy and honored to see him, she was so caught up in making everything perfect for him that she probably lost that excited feeling. Jesus himself said of Martha “thou art careful and troubled about many things.”

The Martha/Mary story is a difficult one for many of us, especially if we tend to be the Martha more than we are the Mary. If you’re Martha, you’re doing a lot and trying to do what’s best, so it seems pretty unfair that someone is not only being “lazy,” even if they are hanging out at Jesus’ feet, but also being applauded for their approach. This is just a reminder to be discerning about whether you are being diligent, orderly and industrious because of divine guidance or you are caught up in the trap of doing things because that’s the way it’s supposed to be done.

Using the Sermon on the Mount can be a helpful checklist, like in this section – Take no thought for what you eat, drink, wear. Don’t be so concerned with the trappings of matter that you forget the most important thing – closeness with Christ, Truth, that makes the atmosphere of Love just swell. I have a family member who does not keep a precisely ordered house, but man can you tangibly feel her love filling up a room.

BEST PRACTICES: I will say that it is a bad idea to try to weaponize this statement and say something like, “I’m sorry Martha, what are you asking me to do?”

“Infinite tasks of truth” suggest to me that it’s important to get your priorities straight, because there is much to do in order to best put on the undivided garment of Christ, to feel that Christly healing power. (S19, 323:9 as a CedarS waterski Met & Prayer Watch GEM)

Progress is a hard thing to determine sometimes. Mrs. Eddy has a good test though: “To ascertain our progress, we must learn where our affections are placed and whom we acknowledge and obey as God. If divine Love is becoming nearer, dearer, and more real to us, matter is then submitting to Spirit. The objects we pursue and the spirit we manifest reveal our standpoint, and show what we are winning.” (SH22)

Section 5: Here’s a “How to” list you can use in order to take that leap and dive right into your meal of spiritual reality.

I love Paul’s advice to the Philippians in citation B19:
(a) Forget about the past. Remember, Paul knows something about what it takes to forget about the past as a former persecutor of Christians. Mary Baker Eddy writes, “When we learn that error is not real, we shall be ready for progress, ‘forgetting those things which are behind.’ (353:21);
(b) Forget about the future. (It’s so easy to fret about what might happen – so this is a great one);
(c) Be in the moment with God;
(d) Now that you’re in the moment, be Christ-like. (For this I like to think of following Jesus’ words, works, and teachings. Think Sermon on the Mount for example.)

(e) I especially appreciate Paul’s metaphor, “I press toward the mark for the prize,” which is an allusion to a Greek foot race and a finishing post.

Paul’s allusion to a foot race reminds me of an experience I had a month ago while on a run. I started thinking about Jesus, how he represented the spiritual idea, the Christ, better than anyone else. There’s a little part of me that likes to be in the lead, so I thought about what it would be like to run with Christ Jesus at my side, well maybe I was a little in the lead. I imagined Jesus was a little slow... Hey! I’m talking about his sandal footwear, not a comment on Jesus’ running shape! It was then that I realized that not only was the Christ present, but he was out in front leading the way for me. At that moment I realized I would have it no other way.

So, what does it mean to have Christ in the lead? It means following in the way Jesus did things, working to emulate the love and the certainty, the forgiveness and understanding that is included in his healing work. I’m sure I’m not saying this as profoundly as it seemed to me in that moment. But I knew that I never wanted to be in the lead again if it meant that I would be leaving the Christ behind. (Of course, you really can’t leave the ever-present Christ behind, though.)

In a sense this is what the last part of this citation is saying – even if you’re not thinking about Christ or intending to bring Christ into your experience, even if you’re “otherwise minded,” “God shall reveal even this unto you.” This is the beauty of Christian Science—everyone is included, even those not ready or willing for it, even those who are against God. God is speaking to each of us regardless of circumstance or even doubt.

Paul’s advice to the Philippians continues in chapter 4 (B20) in another great checklist:

  1. Be joyful in God, who is your stay, your protector, your supplier, your maintainer;
  2. Instead of thinking about what the world is saying about your health, harmony and well-being, think on things that are—
    1. True
    2. Honorable
    3. Right
    4. Pure
    5. Lovely
    6. Admirable (New Living Trans);

Here’s how I approached the Science and Health passages S28 & S29 for Section 5:

In order to really see/dive into REALITY (“spiritual, harmonious, immutable, immortal, divine, eternal”) or Spirit and its formations, here’s a list of things you can do:

  1. Hold thought steadfastly to the good and the true;
  2. Form perfect models in thought and stick to them;
  3. Let the kingdom of heaven (“unselfishness, goodness, mercy, justice, health, holiness, Love”) reign within you;
  4. Let us accept Science;
  5. Let us have one God;
  6. Walk Christ-ward in the footsteps of Truth and Love; and,
  7. Hold the true idea of good constantly in your thought.

Here’s my last personal thought, and this is just a reminder. (Most of you know this so I’m sure you can disregard these suggestions.) It is really easy to criticize the way the world is handling what seems to be chaos right now. It’s easy to say “fear is gripping the world and it is irrational.” In your own thought you can and should argue against fear and argue against any supposed power that would attempt to usurp God’s present care and all-power, omnipotence. It is also a Christian thing to do to respect your neighbor’s concerns and to follow those recommendations which are society’s best intentions for keeping everyone safe.

I went on a run on Tuesday. As I was stretching on the sidewalk I noticed a woman walking on the same sidewalk, so I took four steps back into the grass to give her plenty of “social distance.” She smiled at me and thanked me for stepping aside. Was I afraid? Nope. Was I giving in to something I didn’t believe? Nope. It’s better to pray in secret and let your life bear witness to the power of Spirit exemplified in health and especially in holiness.

This week’s lesson is a great reminder to stick with what is real, true and powerful. Spend your time on that and you will find a world of spiritual reality opening up that you otherwise might have missed.

Notes on CedarS 2020 adjustments and wise, preventative practices:

This Spring, out of hygenic wisdom, we are adding LOTS of handwash stations at CedarS. In fun, uplifting style typical at CedarS we will practice proven protocols for regular, deep-cleaning handwashing "baptisms." Out of a deep desire to be compassionate to everyone's comfort level, we will follow social distancing etiquette. And to be obedient to the laws of the land, we will follow non-gathering guidelines in the short term to bless the longterm.

With the long-range view always in mind as well, CedarS team is prayerfully and practically supporting the spiritual sense of a moment-by-moment closeness to, and even oneness with, God. This will be loved and thanked into view with a thought-by-thought testing process of mental inoculation! We plan to show that such a powerful, prayer-based “vaccine”acting from the inside out is not only always free and always angelically available – but also always affectionately administered and, always instantly effective!

As CedarS Prayer Watch continues daily, we plan to email links to healing ideas shared by our worldwide Prayer Watch team.

To love into view days that are "big with blessings" despite travel restrictions:

As it is developed, daily schedule of CedarS 365 Virtual Gatherings will be shared in the center News section of CedarS Homepage www.cedarscamps.org/. Our spontaneous "Take CedarS Home" series of daily offerings is being planned by a team of CedarS Directors, Ambassadors and awesome staff to share some of CedarS best program features with you and the community of interested families and individuals like you. We had 638 screens opened to well over a thousand viewers and singers in last night's inaugural CedarS 365 Zoom Hymn Sing! (Not recorded, so mark your calendars for next week's schedule!
